Abstract (Document Summary)

A new adult education centre established by the Scarborough Board of Education could become a showplace for other boards, says trustee Bill Davis.

Another proposal to move the adult students into Highbrook Learning Centre in the Midland and Lawrence Aves. area has met with loud protests from that community. Many residents think the influx of up to 600 cars into the area due to the program would pose a serious traffic danger to small children attending nearby Donwood Park Junior Public School.

The board has explored other options but has been equally unsuccessful. Metro and the ministry of education have refused its request to delay the transfer of the adult building, formerly Tabor Park Vocational School located on Midland Ave., to the Catholic board.
